Peggy L. (Sipes) Harden, 80, Nashville

Peggy L. (Sipes) Harden, 80, Nashville, went to party in heaven with her Lord and Savior on Saturday Feb. 23, 2013 at Brown County Health & Living Community, where she has been loved and cared for over the last 6 years as she battled Alzheimer’s Disease. Peggy was born to Clarence and Beulah (Scales) Sipes on Aug. 20, 1932 in Paynetown.

Her loving, dedicated husband, Semmie, whom she married on Oct. 16, 1953, had a lifelong love affair that will last into eternity. He was at her side as he has been for over 59 years. She was also surrounded by her children, Larry and Beth (with husband, Tim), her sister, Sharon Sowder (with husband,Ted) and nephew, Matt.

Peggy loved life and lived it to its fullest. She had a very close family life and was able to enjoy many family get-togethers over the years. They partied, traveled, worshipped together, and they laughed a lot. Peggy had a successful dress shop in Nashville named PegAnn’s Wardrobe that she started with Alice Ann MacDonald. It was her passion and she enjoyed it immensely.

Peggy is survived by her husband, Semmie; son, Larry (Carrie) Harden; daughter, Beth (Tim) Rariden; grandchildren, Nathan and Heather Rariden; brother, Bob Sipes; and sisters, Betty Pate, Jo Ann Jacobs and Sharon Sowder.

A funeral service will be conducted Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 11 a.m. at Bond-Mitchell Funeral Home. Interment will follow at Greenlawn Cemetery in Brown County. The family will receive visitors at the funeral home on Monday, Feb. 25 from 4-8 p.m. and an hour prior to the service on Tuesday.

Memorial contributions can be made to Alzheimer’s Association, 9135 N. Meridian St., Suite B-4, Indianapolis, IN 46209 or at the funeral home.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Brown County Health & Living for the unbelievable care Peggy received during her stay there.
